In the last two summers, we had recipes like <Overnight Oatmeal> and <Chia Pudding>. Both are super easy to make, you don’t even need to cook them, just mix and wait. They are perfect for breakfast, dessert and snacks in hot summer. In order to make it as <Market Concoctions> tradition, let’s try this new recipe.

Smoothie bowls, sounds familiar? They’ve been popular for a while, mostly because of their fancy looking, served in trendy cafés. True, it’s so hard to make an ugly smoothie bowl. However, they’re always packed with rich nutrients as fresh fruits are the main ingredients.

It’s simple as usual, requiring just a blender, a few ingredients and a couple of minutes to make, and totally customizable. The smoothie for the base should be a bit thick, by using things like banana, avocado and nut butter. By using frozen fruits can also create a creamy texture. To make them colorful, we can add in berries, green leaves, cacao powder, etc. Normally it’s sweet already when banana is inside. If you prefer sweeter but also want sugar free, use date instead of sugar. It’s your choice which liquid to put in: milk, soy milk, almond milk, coconut water… When the smoothie is done, top it with some game-changing ingredients, such as small pieces of fruits, nuts, seed, coconut shreds, granola, etc.
